"Work is not man's punishment. It is his reward and his strength and his pleasure."
~ George Sand
On those rare days when I can devote sustained and undivided attention to my writing, I feel so good when I'm done--like I really got some quality work done. Yes, quality work = feels good. It doesn't matter if that work was done on pre-writing, drafting, revising, queries, synopsis, WHATEVER. It just feels good to be working--really working--on my writing.
Hard work dedicated to my writing never feels like punishment. And that is so cool!
How about you?
Is hard writing work a punishment or a pleasure?
